In Texas prisons last year, more than 900 cell phones were confiscated. Most, 738, were not discovered until an inmate had used it.
Inside the walls of Mineral Wells prison 117 were found, the most recovered at any facility.
To access the information stored inside confiscated cell phones, the Texas Department of Criminal Justice created a forensics lab. When attached to readers and sophisticated software, every call, text and picture taken on a phone can be extracted.
